“The SHA256 algorithm will calculate a unique hash, given those inputs.”

(Huh, Medium doesn’t let you edit your comments. I only just made an account, still learning…)

Sure, it’s true that, given the input spaces we’re working in, the hashes are effectively unique, but still…I tend to prefer lies-to-children that are not actual lies, to at least make the reader aware that a simplification is going on, and to point them in the direction of more information if they’re at a higher level.
